home is where the heart is.

and now a break from our regularly scheduled program/blogging. I bring you our very first home! Its not much now (obviously), but it will be finished in a few short months and then we can really make it our own.

we are beyond ecstatic. we've been renting for years (um hi? california is ridiculously expensive) and with the move to arizona we can now afford to own our own place. I am in love with it already and can't wait to paint and pretty much do everything to my heart's desire.
with no land lord to answer to.
this is pure bliss.
just have to make it through another 8 weeks in our 700 square foot studio. yes, the one with NO backyard and two medium size dogs. as much as I love having my fridge and my TV and my closet and my shower within like 5 feet of each other...sigh.
its about time. my closet looks like it exploded. can't wait to have space again for all of my stuff! and space to do all of my crafty nonsense, as Logan likes to call it.
you know... painting, scrapbooking, photographing. all that nonsense :)

we are nerds. and clearly elated. this is our garage if you haven't heard yet. oh man, we are totally going to be those neighbors, aren't we? I'll work on it.

picture jumping attempt: round two

la- la-la-la

and now were tired. house purchasing is a ton of work. yo.

its going to be gorgeous when completed. its a HUGE lot with lots of room for the pups and it over looks a lake, and some pretty pretty pretty mountains.

remember a few days ago when Christen posted this neat idea?
well this will be the view from my front door. soon. :)

oh yes, and here is a fun video to go along with the post. the day we went to look at the house, the hubby and I bought one of those tiny flip camcorders that was on sale. I was going crazy recording videos of everything.
and he was not happy at this point, so ignore him.
I hope to have more vids to post in the future!
ok, well happy friday and stay tuned for an outfit post today as well
back to regularly scheduled programming/blogging.


  1. Oh YES! Oh my word! That is incredible!!!! You are about to have so much fun... and feel so exhausted... and feel that it was so worth it! Our one year anniversary of owning our first home is this month. My word, it was a crazy year, but definitely one of the best decisions we ever made. CONGRATULATIONS!

  2. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I am so freaking excited for you. Your house looks amazing and the lot looks ginormous! How awesome are you two?!

    And I love your sweater, especially with the boots! Oh, and I must admit it was a little weird hearing your voice for the first time on the video but now I can actually tell people about my blogger bestie knowing exactly what you sound like too! :)

    PS will respond to the facebook message today. You and I are the same person. Seriously.

  3. Congratulations!!! I can't even imagine how excited you must be!! I can't wait to have a house of my own. Keep us updated on the progress!

  4. Yeah! new house! It will be so nice to finally have some space huh? We're hoping to move this summer too... mostly because my closet is out of control and Matt wants a driveway.

  5. Congratulations to both of you!!! This is so exciting. I can't believe you've been living in a studio?!?! Are you CRAZY?!!?

    Anyway, enjoy home ownership - it's pretty awesome!

  6. Congratulations on your new house!!!! Can't wait to see how you style it up when it's finished!! :)
